Punjab has a variety of medical colleges ranging from highly acclaimed institutions like Dayanand Medical College and CMC Medical College to newer yet promising ones like Gian Sagar Medical College. These colleges offer excellent education standards, experienced faculty, and clinical exposure to students.
During the counseling process in Punjab, we have observed a trend where the cut-off marks are very high in the first round but drop significantly in the mop-up round. It is important for students to be vigilant and patient while monitoring the counseling process and cut-off trends in Punjab. Many students opt for higher-fee colleges in other states during the early stages of counseling, despite having a good chance of getting a seat in Punjab NEET UG Counseling.
In 2020, there were 8000 applicants for 1285 state quota medical seats in Punjab, which shows a very high level of competition. Close to 6 students competed for every one medical seat available in Punjab. The NEET cut-off marks for government colleges in Punjab in 2020 was 581, and according to our study, it is expected to be around 595 for the year 2021.
